Best Restaurants at Fenway Park
If you’d rather focus on restaurants than specific menu items, then you should know which eateries have reputations for serving the best foods at Fenway Park. Some of the restaurants and concession stands you might want to check out include:
- Dunkin Donuts
- Fenway Fish Shack
- Fenway Grill

If you want something to eat and drink before or after the game, head to The Lansdowne, a pub-style restaurant that also has a venue for live music.
Expect Irish-inspired comfort food when you visit The Lansdowne. But also expect a twist on some Irish favorites. The corned beef and cabbage spring rolls, for instance, are unlike anything else. You might as well place two orders because everyone in your group will want to try one.
Some of the other favorites at The Lansdowne include:

The Lansdowne also has a great selection of drinks at its bar, so you can pair your meal with the perfect beverage.
Island Creek Oyster Bar
Island Creek Oyster Bar is arguably the best restaurant near Fenway Park. If you like a chic atmosphere and adventurous foods, then this is the place for you.
While the restaurant focuses on oysters, fish, and many different kinds of seafood, it also offers chicken, burgers, and other fare. Since the restaurant spends so much time sourcing and preparing its seafood, though, that’s the recommended route. Some items worth trying include:
- Steamed littleneck clams
- Crispy oyster sliders
- Mrs. Bennett’s seafood casserole
- Over roasted Gloucester cod
Island Creek Oyster Bar is also one of the most convenient restaurants for Red Sox fans. Located at Hotel Commonwealth in Kenmore Square, Island Creek is just a short walk to Fenway Park.
